C4K is excited to introduce our four newest team members. Chelsea, Cullen, Johnny, and Mykaela bring unique experiences to their roles, but they all have a passion for working with youth. Read their bios here.
Chelsea is excited to design and implement C4K’s brand-new college and career readiness program. As the Pathways Program coordinator, Chelsea will develop and implement a new college and career readiness program for high school teens. Chelsea has over 11 years of experience as a high school educator and is passionate about helping teens reach their full potential. She is particularly interested in helping teens develop the skills they need to succeed in college and the workforce.
Chelsea’s favorite STEAM activity at C4K is using the Cricut machine. She loves being creative and using technology to make things. She is also a big fan of Taylor Swift and has used the Cricut machine to make stickers of her favorite singer.
Mykaela is the new Mentor Coordinator at C4K. She is responsible for recruiting members and mentors. She also matches our youth members with knowledgeable adult mentors. Mykaela loves working with teens because of their creativity and enthusiasm. She believes everyone has something to offer and is excited to help teens learn and grow by matching them with caring mentors.
Mykaela is interested in learning more about CAD software. She has dabbled with it but is eager to learn how to use it to create physical objects. She is also excited to explore the other tools and machines at C4K.
Cullen is C4K’s Clubhouse Coordinator. He oversees our innovative mentoring program and the Clubhouse. This fall, Cullen will implement C4K’s new cohort model, allowing members to cultivate deeper relationships with their peers and mentors while building STEM skills necessary to access the tools and resources available in C4K’s Clubhouse.
Cullen is passionate about motivating teens and helping them reach their goals. He is also a big fan of field trips and is excited to plan fun and educational excursions for C4K members.
Cullen’s favorite childhood “tech throwback” is the Nintendo DSi. He spent many hours playing with the flipnote application, which allowed him to create short animations with sound and music.
Johnny is the new Assistant Clubhouse Coordinator at C4K. Johnny’s first encounter with a computer or technology occurred at C4K when he was a young member. He is excited to share his knowledge and experience with other teens.
Over the summer, Johnny has been putting together new Tinkering Labs activities that he is excited to share with C4K members. He is interested in engineering and looking forward to expanding his knowledge in this area.
C4K is excited to have Chelsea, Mykaela, Cullen, and Johnny join the team. We are confident that they will positively impact the lives of our members and the C4K community.
